Arriving at the Posada de los Leones (The Lion´s Inn), you will marvel at its wonderful setting among the shady trees of a coffee plantation, evoking a time when life was quiet and more gracious. The faint smell of the coffee flower permeates the pure mountain air. You are surrounded by many-colored bougainvillea, tropical ferns and exuberant flowers that flourish in this eternal spring-like climate.
At night, the inn is illuminated by hundreds of candles like in centuries past when Spanish conquistadors discovered this lush valley and founded the City of St. James of the Knights, now known as Antigua Guatemala, a colonial marvel of imposing architecture, quaint cobblestone streets and elegant colonial homes surrounded by green hills and coffee plantations.
The inn´s Spanish-Moorish architecture with a flowered central patio, cool corridors, tropical gardens, and elegantly furnished rooms dates back to the first inhabitants of Antigua who recreated the mansions of Andalucía in their new homeland. From the second floor terrace, one enjoys a great view of the plantations and the wooded hills surrounding Antigua, while enjoying a sumptuous Guatemalan breakfast.
The spacious lounge and elegant salon, as well as the well-stocked multilingual library are yours to enjoy. The rustle of fountains in the two exuberant gardens and the vibrant Guatemalan textiles that accent the high ceiling-ed rooms will put you in the mood for exploring more of the jewel that is Antigua.
Each of the six spacious rooms and suites features one queen or two twin beds, a cozy fireplace, a large bathroom in the Moorish style, lovely handmade wooden furniture and local artwork. In line with their Moorish heritage they are called Poesia, Jasmin, Sherazad, Zahar, and Magia. French windows open on to your private furnished garden terrace. Elegant appointments and attention to detail make these rooms some of Central America’s finest. A fine blend of antique European and Latin American furniture, paintings and sculptures throughout and unrivaled personal attention will make your stay a memorable experience.
